As you might know by now if you’ve been following the blog for a while, I like getting great deals as well as saving money. And one of my favorite ways to save is by making my own decorations (like these fun and cute Halloween printables I shared with you last month). Sure, we’ll still have our tree, put up lights and whatnot, but this Christmas is not going to be any different. Yesterday I made two super easy DIY paper Christmas decorations and I’m quite proud of how they turned out. The steps are really simple, too. No drilling, sawing or soldering involved. You’d be done in a couple of hours or even less! So, without further ado, let’s get started, shall we?

A. Corrugated kraft board
B. Paper twine
C. Tinsel cord
D. Jewelry charms and charm rings
E. Metallic marker

What did I say? Super easy, right? These would be perfect as table centerpiece or as mantel decor. Feel free to substitute any materials for what you already have at home and put your own spin on the design. Let your creative juices flow!
Well, I hope you enjoyed these DIY paper Christmas decorations and if you try any of these, send me a picture. I would love to see how they look in your home.
